Astec Industries’ new sand processing plant and cone crusher

Johnson Crushers International, a company of Astec Industries, has expanded its Kodiak Plus cone crusher series with the new K350+. This mid-range model offers higher production with a smaller footprint.

In comparison to the K300+, the K350+ features increases in drive train, stroke, horsepower, weight, head diameter and hold-down force, resulting in an up to 10% capacity increase. With the same bolt pattern, the new cone can be mounted in most current K300+ applications.

“We have been testing the K350+ for a few years, especially on portable plants, and it has far surpassed our expectations. We are excited to release the K350+ to the market,” said Ian Pendergrass, product manager for Johnson Crushers International.

Like other cones in the Kodiak Plus cone crusher series, the K350+ will feature an industry-leading tramp iron relief system, fully-protected internal counterweights, precision roller bearing design, patented liner retention system and 360° thread locking ring for consistent product quality.

In addition, Kolberg-Pioneer, also part of Astec Industries, has expanded its sand processing plant line to include the new 9201 model. This system is designed to dewater and fine-tune sand to a level not typically possible with traditional sand-dewatering equipment, while also using less water.

The custom-built systems are available in portable, semi-portable and stationary configurations with various types and quantities of cyclones, pumps and dewatering screen sizes.

“The 9201 is a very customisable unit that can be built to fit any application. The plant has many adjustable features like the deck liner and discharge dam and easy-to-replace parts for quick and simple maintenance,” said Brett Casanova, product manager at Kolberg-Pioneer.
